Organization Frenzy - Sponge Daubers

I have finally decided to tackle those things that annoy me in my craft room.  One of them was my sponge daubers.  I used to use one per colour family but then my greens, blues and pinks were getting all inked up in the wrong shades, so here is my latest organization project.  I bought this box a while back for little  embellishments but it didn't work for me, so I redid those and found that this box was perfect for my little daubers.  Most of these colours are from the Memento range of stamp pads.  If you click on the pic you will see that some have little stars above the name - those indicate Tim Holtz stamp pads.  I do have a few more that didn't fit in this box, but as my collection of stamp pads grow, I think that I will eventually have a box for Memento inks and another for the Tim Holtz inks. My very smart daughter made a chart with the names of the inks for me. I then stamped a heart of each colour that correspondes with the colour of the sponge dauber.  I adhered each little card to the lid with a removable zot - this way I can change it when the need arises. So, what do you all think?  Any better suggestions are expremely welcome :)
Now it's off to the next project ... I want to do my cling/clear stamps, my spellbinders and my patterned paper scraps drawer.  In between I need to make a few cards, so I will share those with you in the next few days too.
Wishing you all a wonderful week,


  1. This is really cool. I think I might have to do something similar. I have a project in mind for my Tim Holtz sponges but I just havent gotten to it yet:)lol. Hopefully I will soon.

  2. Awesome idea! May have to scraplift : )

  3. Wow you got a lot of colors!!!! I did not know that Tim Holz also had little ones.

  4. Great job organizing! I saw something like this on a SU! demonstrator's blog but haven't tried it yet. Seeing yours makes me want to make one. I have so many clear stamps and I posted a long time ago about putting them in trading card protector sheets. I still have so many to put in them. LOL


Thank you for taking the time to post a comment. They are always so welcome and appreciate :-)
